Custom built by highly-regarded builder Bruce Conklin in 2003, this home humbly offers 2,745 square feet of well-designed and comfortable living space for all. A modern take on the center hall Colonial, this open floorplan includes both an office on the first floor and an in-law or guest suite. Sunny and bright, this home has been meticulously maintained over its 18 years by one owner. Perhaps best of all, it’s 2-acre setting offers open space outside too with tremendous privacy you can enjoy from its quintessential wraparound porch or rear deck.
Front Porch: From the stamped asphalt walkway, you’re beckoned onto the covered wraparound porch with resilient mahogany decking, classic white vinyl railings and a vinyl beadboard ceiling. It’s wide enough for rocking chairs to enjoy your morning coffee and a porch swing for lazy afternoons in the sun. It wraps around to the rear deck for easy entertaining and provides access to the pool in the side yard.
Entry: The front door with screened storm door and side lights welcomes you to the foyer. Nine foot ceilings and hardwood floors give it an open feel as you take in the flow of the home. You’ll see the office on left, ahead of you how the sun pours into the living room, the beautiful staircase with hardwood treads in front of you, and the dining room and kitchen to your right.
Dining Room: This open dining room shines with its hardwood floors, crown molding, chair rail and modern grey paint. It’s spacious with its bump-out, and versatile with the ability to be as formal or relaxed as you’d like.
Office: This first floor space will make working from home a delight! With double windows on each wall it overlooks the front and side yards with multi-dimensional sunlight. It’s been freshly re-carpeted and has blinds to balance the light.
Front Hall: As you follow the wood floors to the living room you’ll find the hall closet and the privately set powder room with a Kohler pedestal sink and toilet, wall sconces and a side window.
Living Room: The sun-filled living room is spacious and opens directly to the kitchen and breakfast nook with direct access to the back deck and views of the woods beyond the home. It has fresh, plush carpeting and was just repainted a neutral cool grey which runs into the kitchen uniting the spaces. The ceiling fan and sliding glass door circulate the fresh air throughout the home.
Kitchen: The open layout and multiple work spaces make meal prep easy – even with a crowd. Storage is plentiful in the maple cabinetry with glass door accent, a lazy-susan and pantry cabinet, plus an additional work/beverage station. It looks into the living room with a newer deep basin stainless sink and pull-down commercial style faucet, and stainless steel appliances. The bumped-out breakfast nook is flanked with windows topped with plantation shutters, and a door leads to the deck perfect for grilling or dinner al fresco. Underfoot, the oversized charcoal tile is as stylish as it is durable.
Mudroom/Laundry: The indestructible kitchen tile continues into the mudroom with hooks on each wall and plenty of floor space to collect footwear when coming in from the oversized garage. Opposite the mudroom area is the laundry room with a window overlooking the rear yard making the chore more enjoyable.
First-Floor Inlaw/Guest Suite: Privately set off the mudroom is the fourth bedroom with it’s own attached full bathroom and walk-in closet. With views of the picturesque backyard, this is a terrific space that could work for an in-law setup or guest suite.
Master Suite: A true retreat at the day’s end, the Master Suite is very spacious with great natural light, has been freshly carpeted and was just painted a soothing grey. The ensuite bathroom is also generously sized with tile floor, double vanities, extra counter space, a jetted tub overlooking the backyard and tree line, a walk-in shower and a private commode.
